Live GR: Discrimination, 18th of May, 7:30 pm AEST

Hey everyone!

 

This Monday we're going to be having another live discussion, this time to do with Discrimination.

 

Discrimination can take place in many forms, and is present pretty much everywhere. It affects everything from someone's day to day life to the kinds of policies we see in government. This has profound effects on people's welfare and mental health, and this is definitely something to remember with all of the news and information circulating right now!

Because discrimination is so pervasive, sometimes we might not notice it in circumstances that don't affect us, or we may even take part without realising it. Which is one of many reasons why it's so important to discuss and keep discussing topics like sexism, racism, ableism, and other forms of prejudice- as well as how we can tackle them as a society! 

 

Beyond this, this Getting Real chat is a safe space to discuss discrimination and how it has affected you and your loved ones, as well as how to cope with it and who to reach out to for support- whether personal or professional!

We'll be kicking off the discussion at 7:30 pm AEST on Monday the 18th of May, and hope to see you all there! Smiley Very Happy Heart
